Heptune presents:

It's Swell of You

Photograph of Louis Jordan.

    (Gordon & Revel)

Transcribed from Chick Webb and his Orchestra, vocal by Louis Jordan, recorded March 24, 1937.
From Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five, 1934-1940; The Chronogical Classics, 636.

It's swell of you,
Treating me so kindly,
Swell of you,
I was heading blindly,
Then your smile
Showed me the way to love!

It's swell of you,
Just to let me share the spell of you;
Funny what a pleasant word will do
To bring out the blue up above!

When I have you, and an inspiration,
And should you get by, and in appreciation,
I promise that I'll love you, dear, until the day I die!

It's swell of you,
While I live my lips will tell of you,
Just how grand you are and that you'll be
The one for me,
You'll never know exactly what you've done for me,
But it's oh, so awfully mighty swell of you!
